2019 Namaste & Chill Grant Recipients

This year, Namaste & Chill awarded grants to two projects: the PickleBike and Combust a Move! Both of the projects debuted at Burning Man 2019

The PickleBike is a larger-than-life pickle built on a tandem bicycle frame that provides pickle-based refreshments! A collaboration between Lucy Lo and Dusty Smith, there are three major components to the PickleBike: the bicycle, a bicycle sidecar, and the pickle frame with a bar and window. The outside layer of the pickle is flame-retardant green stretch fabric. The Namaste & Chill grant covered the entire cost of the fabric!

Combust a Move is a fire conclave group that aims to create pure magic and enchantment with the gift of dance, fire and flow. This is their first year as a conclave group and they made it through the extensive and strict application process — we couldn’t be happier for them! Their grant award purchased their costumes, fuel, and special effects powder.

Our 2019 grant is the combined result of the past 3 events. We could not have done it without the support of everyone who helped create our events and everyone in attendance! We are supremely grateful to our community — everyone who was involved in this effort played an important part! This is a truly collaborative project.
